The trailer features Nick Frost as St. Nick, although he definitely doesn’t have a smile on his face. Maybe that’s because the clip also includes some creatures that are far more frightening than elves.
“It’s Christmas, the North Pole,” the Time Lord (Peter Capaldi) exclaims. “Who you gonna call?”
Michael Troughton, Natalie Gumede, Faye Marsay and Nathan McMullen guest star. The episode was written by Emmy-winning Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.
The special is set to air on BBC America on a date that has not yet been announced.
